A list of OCs for Future Works

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 13, 2011, 9:17 PM

Tanker (tangk'er)n. 1. A dusty, grease-covered, dirty, bright eyed, fuzzy faced, beer-drinking, underrated, over-worked, oversexed, little s%#* who can take a Tank and do more battlefield damage in ten minutes than a grunt squad can do in an day.

Current News

Alright, recall that previous journal about doing more collaborative efforts, or getting works done with not just my original characters but others as well?  Well, I would like to get a list created of OC's that their creators have blessing to be used, in clean fun only (some of you pervs out there were hopin I'm sure ;p ).  But it is NOT a carte blanche approval for me to do whatever I want with your characters.  I'll explain further.

Basically, I like to commission artists to make other artists characters, because 1) I can't draw, so might as well hire someone to make fanart of a character I think is cool, 2) it's a gift from me to you, the owner, and 3) it provides view ability and connections between artists of different styles and/or levels.  It's networking on a basic level, essentially, and I like doing that.  

Now, some folks have expressed discomfort or concern about that, and while I disagree with their reasoning, I CAN see their point and I can respect that.  So this list is only of characters that you are willing to be used in commission efforts like the ones below:
Law and Order - WIP by RBL-M1A2Tanker Tankette + Lava - Preview by RBL-M1A2Tanker

Or as gift fanart from me.  I'll break it up into two categories, so that way you're not getting a gift image, and say...your character hanging out with mine.  That would be lame.

This would also be purely clean.  Maybe sexy, but no hentai, romance, bodily harm, or anything of that nature.  Also, I would ask you ahead of time before I just had the image created, so you get to deny the idea if you so wish.  

So basically, this list is just a list of candidates you would be ok with me getting art made of, but I would still follow up with you for your permission if I actually come up with an idea to use them.  This should keep everyone happy I think, but if you have suggestions to improve that, suggest away.  If you're not comfortable saying anything in the journal here, feel free to send me a note.

I know there's a couple folks who have suggested their characters for other projects, but I will not assume that you still suggest them.  That'd be poor taste on my part if I did so.  

Also, it would be nice if there was a limit to the characters suggested.  I know of at least one individual with more characters than Capcom and SNK put together, and being told, "Any character I have!" would be a little overwhelming.  At least be specific with a name, maybe a link to the character if you have art already, and that would be great.  The limit will be 5 characters per person.  You may change them out on occasion if you like.  ;p

So, any takers/approvers?  

I should point out, that if you say nothing, either in a note, IM, or comment here, and you actually WOULD like to have artwork created of your characters (or at least entertain the possibility of me paying another artist to make it happen), you have to SAY something now, or forever hold your peace.  I won't be seeking out permission for any future images with your character unless you tell me NOW that you are ok with the idea.  If you're not ok with it, then feel relieved, for I won't be seeking you out to ask at any time.  That's the way it's to be from now on. No matter how awesome or cool or whatever I feel your character is.

Cliff Notes/Summary: Basically I'm making a list of artists who are ok with me contacting them with ideas for images to be created, usually as a commission, using one or several of their characters. Like say I wanna get an image of Tankette, Jessie Tendo from The-Kid and Chief Petty Officer Marie having a night on the town. Or say I just want to get fanart of Ninja Jessie made by another artist.  Nothing dirty or OOC would be done with the characters at any time.  If you don't wanna offer up a character straight up, and would rather I just contact you about an idea for you to consider, that is a third option.

Well, if you say you're ok with having your characters used in commissions, then I would approach you with this idea to get your permission to use your character in this manner.

If you don't say anything, or you decline, then I won't approach you to use your characters in any form, regardless of how cool I think your character is or how much visibility I think he or she should get.

I'm fascinated to see what you and the collaborator might come up with Miss Doomsday (and thank you for that, by the way). Feel free to use the character anyway you like. She can be riding a giant snail wearing a tutu, if you so desire. :)
RBL-M1A2Tanker Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2011
Well we'll certainly have to work on that. Though the gian snail wearing a tutu sounds rather amusing, to say the least. :D

BTW Tank - you may kick those old 3 images of Iris out and have these as new refs: [link] [link] [link] [default outfit] | [link] [link] [armor] C:
RBL-M1A2Tanker Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2011
I can do that, and those links are great. I'd forgotten about them, but remembered them the instant I saw them lol.
DaveLuck Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2011
And thanks... I'd be flattered to see someone do a depiction of Alicia, as long as it's got plenty of BADASSERY and lots of FUCKYOU! in it, and she's the one giving off the BADASSERY and FUCKYOU!, bwahahaha!
RBL-M1A2Tanker Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2011
I imagine that can be arranged ;p
DaveLuck Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2011
Okay, almost finished putting together those images! Just been really busy lately, that's all.
bidujador Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2011
well my authorization is more than implied, since you've been commissioning my characters with fantastic results. So I really appreciate it every time you do it (needless to say, as long as they don't appear in graphically sexual art specially of the yaoi, yuri kind XD)
RBL-M1A2Tanker Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2011
Naturally. I imagine many folks would get upset if I did that to their characters. My characters are mine to abuse, as it were, but everyone elses is not.
ilex9 Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2011
You already know you have permission with Minerva. Kris if you liked working with her before.
Rebecca [link]
Betty [link]
Nappa Black thinks she is cool enough to be in anything you can think of (though those of us with some sense of reality would say that is up for debate.)

Tried to put a variety of types for you to choose from if you want to use my characters for something... except they're all ladies (or not). I don't know if any of them pass the litmus test for what you're looking for though. If for some reason you think any of my guys are cool, just say the word.
RBL-M1A2Tanker Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2011
I didn't wanna assume though to be honest. ^^;

And that's cool, especially if they're all ladies. They always need the love and attention! :D
EchoWing Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
I would welcome you doing artwork featuring my OC, Alex Masters.

RBL-M1A2Tanker Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2011
I do like her. She's pretty cool. What does she do anyways?
EchoWing Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
That varies. I've used her for three different storylines. In the first, she was a Gundam pilot. In the second, she's a Pokémon trainer. In the third, she's a high school student who's trying not to get killed by hitmen.

In general, though, she's a smart good-natured girl, skilled in armed and unarmed combat and blessed with above-human physical abilities and limited telepathic powers. Not afraid to fight, but not in a rush to get into one.
BlackKusanagi Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2011  Student General Artist
Anyone of mine. Just let me know. XD
RBL-M1A2Tanker Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2011
You did that on deserve a trout slap! *hits you with a trout*
LordTrekie Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I figure I should mention I don't mind if you do collabs/etc... with Marie in it. Though you likely already knew that.
RBL-M1A2Tanker Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2011
Yea, but it's good to have it reaffirmed. :D
